If your financial system controls the creation and open-closed status of matters in iManage WorkSite, you may occasionally run into situations where a matter has been closed, yet there is still content to contribute. Here are some tips about the situation.
Q: Does the workspace still appear in workspace search results?
A: Yes, the workspace still appears in the search results.Q: Can you contribute more documents to the workspace?
No, you cannot contribute additional documents or emails to the workspace.Q: What is the behavior when you attempt to contribute to the closed workspace?
If you are using client-side filing, the profile form pops up and rejects the disabled matter ID (e.g. 11023). If you are using server-side filing, this may fail later and be logged on the server. You may instead see the imFieldDisabled error pop-up.Q: Is there an easy way to tell that a workspace is closed?
Regrettably at present, there is no EASY way to tell if the matter associated with a workspace is closed. You have to look at the matter status manually, via a matter lookup dialog, e.g. in the workspace search or document search forms.
